Flushing was bit by a snake on Saturday. The annual Lunar New Year parade has become a welcome staple of life in the neighborhood, with lion dances, music, dragons and delicious food galore.
Elected officials, and community and business leaders lead off the parade.

It’s never to late to kick out a few jams, Gangnam Style, like this PSY impersonator.
